Assassins Creed Brotherhood Preview
If you haven't played the brilliant Assassins creed video games then please go out and rent or purchase them as they are quite simply excellent.With the new one out in the next couple of months i have decided to do a preview of the game,Let me give you some background on the series of games that have captured peoples imaginations.Essentially it is a historical fantasy game which is governed by two factions,The knights Templar and the Assassins (also known as the brotherhood)The games main character played by you is a man known as Desmond who is an escaped member of the modern day Brotherhood order,The modern day Templar's keep him locked up and use a machine called the animus to record and document his memories of being an assassin in another life essentially.A lot of the game involves you learning how to climb up on to roofs and to do incredible jumps and also lots of different killing and assassassinating techniques,all of them are quite good fun.There are lots of other elements including tailing people,pickpocketing and using various weapons and equipment to further your advancement in the game.The game switches between the present day where you are being kept captive and the old times where you relive your ancestors memories by assassinating people.In the second game you escape the clutches of your captors and end up in the hands of the a group of former Templar's who are trying to right their wrongs,you are put in a new machine and relive the actions of another assassin called Ezio,Ezio becomes an assassin after his father and brother are murdered and then goes forward tracking down several people responsible and acting a terrible revenge.The game has come further in the second game as you can now swim,and ride various other vehicles.Background on the games done,lets concentrate on the third installment which is looking very good.
In the third installment of this game called Assassins creed brotherhood we revisit with our friend Ezio from the second game,he is now a master assassin and is enduring an almighty struggle with the Templar's who have now disbanded to their base in ancient Rome.The ancient Rome map in which you play is 3 times as big as any map they have ever made and will prove to be a really accurate version of ancient Rome.In this game you not only are responsible for your own actions but you also lead a band of trained assassins,find people across Rome and train them up and send them on missions to become super assassins,then if needed you can use them to help you complete certain missions where you face huge adversity.Like the second game you can also use your hard earned cash to bring the city back to its former glory and revitalise it by upgrading shops,houses and the like.For the first time ever multi-player action has been introduced so you can battle friends online which is sure to be a big seller.
This mode is the biggest advancement from last years game and the one that fans of the other two Assassins games have been waiting for,The ability to be your own assassin and chase friends across buildings or air assassinate them from above is positively mouth watering,Ubisoft the games makers have promised rich and detailed maps to play in and the ability to choose form a wide variety of characters each with their own specific skills and kill moves.There will be a mode where by some of your online pals have to blend into a crowd while you seek them out from above then assassinate each one.There aren't many details on the multi-player mode yet but it certainly seems like they will gain a whole new fan base by adding this very important mode.
In short if this game is anything like the other two then it will sell really well,but the fact of the matter is it is sounding like it is going to be twice the game and with the added addition of multi-player i can see this game becoming game of the year without question.I will write a full review when the game is released later in the year,so look out for that one,in the meantime keep checking the web for the latest videos.
